This was the first time we went to a Luau and it was amazing. Great food, intriguing story, good drinks. We plan on attending another Luau there when we go back to Kauai with our kids!

Choose Kalamaku ! What I loved about this luau is that it was different than others. They told a story throughout the whole production rather than featuring different dances from multiple areas. Food was nothing spectacular but still good.

Overall good and worth the money. It was fairly good food, LOVED the chicken. The food, vendor and open bar really helped. The ambiance was great. The show performers were phenomenal. But....it was a show. I would call it more of a Hawaiin opera that told a story. So they lost a star for that. But the actual show was... More

Drinks - Mai Tais, Blue Hawaiians, Mixed, Beer and Wine.... they don't fool around with their pouring either. Performance - Storylike, Very Professional, high tech, live band, well choreographed, enchanting Vendors - lots of vendors onsite prior to... More

Exceptional in every way! Our first Luau. We were there for our 25th wedding anniversary and they were excited to celebrate it with us! The music provided by the band was wonderful! We enjoyed the other couples at our table! The Imu Ceremony should not be missed. The food and blue hawaiians were amazing! When the Luau started you were... More

Not sure if the regular Luau is different but we went off the POA while in port. It's just a 10 minute ride up the street on nice motor coaches. This is about where nice ended. After standing in a long line to check in, it was really about them getting your photo taken so they could sell you pictures.... More

The Luau was fabulous. They had it down to a science. Everything from start to finish was very organized and professional. VERY friendly staff. Delicious food. Especially the pork! Would definitely go to this one again and WILL be recommending to our friends and family when they visit the Garden Isle. Every bit worth the money and more.

1) The staff was rude 2) The food was mediocre The whole experience was a let down. We actually left after 45 minutes because we weren't having a good time and nothing felt authentic.

After giving my toddlers more than a week to adjust to the time change, we finally decided to take the plunge and bring them to this luau even though it was way past their bedtime on the mainland. I'm so glad we did. It was a beautiful show that I enjoyed more than Cirque du Soleil, and my four-year old... More

The entire evening was awesome! From the food (everything was delicious!) to the entertainment, the whole event exceeded expectations. With over 500 people in the arena, you might not expect things to progress verysmoothly, but they have everything down like a well oiled machine. Guests are well informed about when service will end--and when the show begins. The show is... More
